I was trying to upgrade my Gameshell from OS v0.4 to OS v0.5 to do this i followed the pinned post in this thread GameShell OS image files (v0.5)
I used ssh to get into the gameshell and I used wget to download the 0.4 to 0.5 patch.
Then i typed sudo apt-get update && sudo apt upgrade
Into ssh. This took a while…Then I used chmod to make the patch from step 1 executable. Then I ran the patch.
At first everything was fine. In the about me it still said OS 0.4 but the linux kernel had upgraded. I had read from others that the dark theme is broken with is update so I changed the theme to default before starting. I changed the graphics driver to the Lima driver because I heard that it was better now with this update
Then i rebooted and now I can’t get the Gameshell to work. I get stuck at the Happy Hacking message on startup. It just says Happy Hacking and then You have mail.
I’m wondering if this thing is still salvageable because this was a few hours ago and I can’t ssh into it anymore. Probably because the modem has given it a different IP address. I don’t know if I can use usb to connect to it because I’m not if it was enabled and I can’t enablr it because I’m stuck at the Happy Hacking sign on start up.
Any help would be much appreciated. I really like this system and had been happily playing Pokemon Crystal Clear on it. I just did this upgrade in the hopes I could eventually get the mupen64 emulator working for some n64 games also because the notes on the upgrade said this update would improve heat and battery life.
